American Pole & Timber can now manufacture FSC® Certified timber trusses and other custom structural wood products.
As part of their dedication to supply products that meet LEED and other green building standards, American Pole & Timber in Houston, TX has developed a product groups control system that meets the requirements of, and has been approved by, the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification system and can now manufacture and distribute “FSC® 100% and/or FSC® Mix Lumber Products.”
American Pole & Timber has been supplying FSC® Certified lumber and wood products for a while now. This new certification means they can custom manufacture finished products from FSC® Certified raw materials and those finished products can carry the FSC® Certified designation.
Points for LEED Certification
“This means we can supply FSC® Certified custom structural wood components such as timber trusses for LEED projects.” says Eric Lincoln, Sales Manager at American Pole & Timber.
Eric says having the FSC® certification for products like timber trusses can earn a lot of points in the “Materials and Resources” category – and maybe others — of the LEED certification process and help designers and builders earn the coveted Platinum LEED rating.
